Just back from four days (over the past two weekends) on the salt out of Seward with Captain Tat of PFish.
We did the grand slam.
Day 1: 8 Kings caught trolling. Bright strong 25 pounders.
Day 2: Limit of hailbut and some large Ling Cod (we threw them back 'cause the season was not open).
Day 3: Limits of silvers all around out near Pony Cove then further out near the rock pinacles for more big lings. We got to keep them this time! We also kept a few nice rockfish who blew up and released all that didn't.
Day 4: Limits of Halibut with one 134 pounder. I caught that one. The captain coached me right through it, not letting me pull the bait till she finally inhaled it. It took five minutes of tugs before she really grabbed hold.
Great weather, comfortable fast boat, fantastic folks, primo fishing.
The scenery was spectacular too: Orcas, Whales, a pod of dophins buzzed the boat for half an hour, sea otters, sea lions basking on the rocks, Eagles, even a hot tub on the beach at Port Ashton Lodge.
Life is good all around out of Seward.
